Travis is a bitch

With situational irony, the outcome of the situation is not what the reader expected to happen. This is definitely a twist in the plot. One hoped the Whites would receive the $200 but did not expect their son to be killed in a machine accident and then receive $200 as compensation for his loss of life. The reader did not expect the Whites to receive the money this way.
